A pear-shaped body stores fat on the hips and thighs, making you appear disproportionate in many types of clothing. You must keep the shape of your large thighs in mind when buying clothing, so your wardrobe complements your body’s natural curves. Dressing your large thighs does not mean donning baggy clothing; rather, wear articles that accentuate your more attractive features. Clothes that disguise the size difference between your thighs and the rest of your body will help balance your figure.
- Purchase wide-legged pants that do not taper with the shape of your leg down to your calf. These pants create a column shape, disguising the size difference between your upper and lower legs.
- Wear skirts that hang loosely from your hips and flare at the base, creating a bell shape. A-line skirts in particular will complement the shape of large thighs. Avoid any skirt that tapers or creates a straight line down your legs.
- Wear jackets and shirts that cinch in at your waist and flare out at your hips. Shirts and jackets should hang 2 to 3 inches past the band of your pants or skirt to draw attention away from your large thighs.
- Purchase clothing for your lower body in dark colors, such as black, charcoal and navy. Darker colors have a slimming effect, as they trick the eye into seeing shadows that make a surface appear smaller.
- Pick vibrantly colored tops to draw attention up and away from your thighs. Colors such as red, yellow, orange or white will complement the darker tones of your pants or skirts and make your thighs less noticeable.
